Ian Anderson - Ian Anderson to record more music

Picture:

Ian Anderson plans to make ''one or two'' more albums before he stops recording.

The Jethro Tull frontman, whose new record 'Homo Erraticus' reached number 14 in the UK Album Charts, his highest charting solo record to date, still has plans to tour but might not want to record too many records in the future.

He said: ''I'm heading off to various parts of the world on tour during the rest of this year and into 2015 again before I take a break to record something.

''There's maybe one or two more recordings in me before I decide I've done enough.''

But as a performer, Ian, 66, claims he is lucky to still be able to tour and health is on his side, therefore he wants to make the most of it.

He explained: ''I might find myself even going back to New Zealand and Australia. I can get on doing what I do for as long as I can, without fear of getting the sack or stopping on age related grounds,'' adding, ''If you had my job, you wouldn't really think about retiring unless it's thrust upon you.''

The singer's next record will be a ''string quartet album'' featuring music ideal for ''funerals and weddings.''

Ian told BANG Showbiz: ''A lot of people do like those big moments in their lives to have a big piece of music mark the passage into life or death. I think it'd be quite nice to make a record that would consist of music which someone could say, 'We could play this at our daughter's wedding.' ''

Ian is set to go out on tour from next week with dates across the UK, kicking off at the Brighton Dome on Monday April 28. He play tracks from his new album and a number of Jethro Tull classic. Tickets and information is available at Gigantic.com/artist/ian-anderson.
